Everything I wear or make is always in block colours. If I’m going to be honest pattern material scares me. I made this from 2638 Simpilicity pattern and it only took me about six hours to make. I was inspired to make this dress by two peoplpe. The first is a new friend Adriana Orozco from this wesite, with the words she said to me on my last project Midnight blue Prom Dress (so thank Adriana and I hope my clothes will look as beautiful as your projects) and the second person is my husband. He always encorages me to do anything I want to do and when I get disheartened he always says "it’s all just practice. Thank you for believing x
